RE: quadrajet replacement

IMO the Q-jet is a PINA to rebuild compared to just about any other carb. I replaced one a Blazer that I used to race offroad with the Holly easy to rebuild or setup.

RE: Serious Flaw in Firefox and Chrome Browsers!

Lower left using FF 53 shows apple site but when I click on the link Bitdefender calls it a phishing site and blocks it. I guess FF 53 is not yet up to speed thanks for the info and fix.

RE: AT&T Unlimited LTE Hotspot $20 without AT&T phones

You can put the sim card into another hotspot and most likely nothing will happen but ATT's contract states you can not swap to a phone. Others have tried and received an e-mail while others have gotten away with swapping to a phone and have no feed back... go figure. Once you swap look at your account and you will see instead of Mobility it says "unknown device" so they do know you violated your contract and are subject to cancellation.

RE: 1999 Prevost - What a coach!

Our RV has no slides our friends have slides when camping in winter we heat with 2 portable electric heaters and stay comfortable they have to go buy propane after a week or so of running the furnace + electric heaters. I suspect a 99 Provest is still worth a ton of money if you could find one for sale. I know I would be proud to own one just no in the budget.

RE: AT&T Unlimited LTE Hotspot $20 without AT&T phones

Mine works great 30mbs down 32mbs up -73 dbm from home. Cancelled my $60 a month 15mbs cable and I will rarely go over the 22Gb. The WiFi signal is not very powerful so I will have to come up with an attached wireless router the grand kids not as likely to visit if they can't access the internet.

RE: Kiwkee steps just clicking..

I had that problem several years back turned out to be the four wire connector was corroded and would not pass enough current to run the motor. The connector looks like the four way trailer connector take it apart spray contact cleaner on both sides reconnect then do it again. Caution when working on the steps if they suddenly start and you are in the way the steps will win that battle every time. I have also had to replaced the motor but that was a different symptom.

RE: Pathway X2 Owners

Do you have a way to check the voltage at the tailgater low voltage can cause weak signal.

RE: AT&T Unlimited LTE Hotspot $20 without AT&T phones

Ordered mine online through ATT yesterday (FRI) shipped and in town today (Sat) arrived to late for delivery today I will pick up Mon. Already have phone number and can activate online I will probably have to call in for FAN discount. Made my own DC supply.

RE: AT&T Unlimited LTE Hotspot $20 without AT&T phones

Well the Mobility is no longer available or very limited closes one to me is a Best Buy 150 miles down the road. ATT has non in stock. I plan to buy one but was waiting to see if they would update the firmware to operate under motion or detect something on one of the OBDII pins besides ground and power. Right now you can change the time out so no big deal.

RE: Windy conditions

On the road and winds over 40 I head for a campground. We have been in winds over 60 in campground lots of rocking even with the jacks down. More than once set through tornado warnings can't outrun them so head to bathhouse or just hunker down and pray. Never worried but do know it can get dangerous from really bad storms with creeks flooding, lighting, trees blowing over, high winds.

RE: restoring 1987 holaday Rambler

What I have found most of the parts will match to a P30 VAN. Also the parts guy/gal will try to sell you 1 ton pick-up parts but they do not match up.

RE: Limit bandwidth for Win 10 updates?

Gdetrailer wrote - As far as the OPs concern goes, no, no way to "limit" the bandwidth, but do check to make sure MS is NOT USING YOUR PC CONNECTION FOR UPDATING OTHER PEOPLES PCs. The default for Win10 is to allow MS to use your PC to help distribute their updates, using YOUR Internet connection and YOUR PC instead of theirs.. I'd appreciate hearing more about this - What setting do I look at and How do I change it. Only had Win10 for a month so many things about it are new. Thanks. This makes no sense to me I set here with my WIFI set on low power I doubt my neighbors could use it if they had my passcode. I can see theirs but with out their network being OPEN (very unlikely) how is this possible ??????

RE: PhotoBucket lost all my pics.

Still doesn't make sense PB didn't have a back-up I'm sure they run raid systems and mirror all drives.

RE: Lights on sig

On many vehicles headlights are numbered for left side right side. Example 9007 goes on passenger side 9004 goes on drivers side. If you have 9007s on booth sides you will have one side bright beam and the other on low beam. When you switch from hi to low the lights will also reverse one side hi beam one side low beam.

RE: Getting older MH road ready

Agree more info on year make and as others say how long it has been setting. Be careful using starting fluid and only use it after trying to start and have a starting problem. The fluid if overused will dry the cylinder walls and lock up the engine.

RE: Bitdefender Free Antivirus

I used it for years and just upgraded to Bitdefender AV Plus mainly because it has ransom ware protection. Same virus protection as the free but more options you can't go wrong I also have Malwarebytes installed and the two programs get along just fine. Windows 10 64 bit. Added this post... BD Plus has a secure browser feature for using on a public WIFI you might be interested in.

RE: Old coach smells

X2 on mice they give off a musty type order and you smell it as soon as you open the door (ask me how I know}. We put in a large bouquet of eucalyptus and that took the mice smell out until they found a way beck in. Dryer sheets work short time. When all else fails ozone generator works great but you should not occupy the RV while the ozone generator is running.
